Date:

1960-1994
ca 1960-1994
Notes:
It is possible that this was the garden of Harriet Maxwell of Oenoke Lane in New Canaan, designed by Friede Stege in 1965. The design featured a covered patio with outdoor seating looking onto a tree-bordered lawn area. Another feature was a traditional picket fence and arbor with climbing roses. Because the garden's identity isn't absolutely certain, the images have been assigned a broad date span, although it is likely that they were taken in the late 1960s.
Persons associated with the garden include Friede Stege (landscape architect, 1965) and Harriet Maxwell (former owner, ca. 1965-?).
